So. Much. SWAG!
Nick Young is awesome. Why? Aside from his ability to put up points in a hurry and his extremely swaggy ways, the L.A. native also has the balls to attempt a 360 layup despite attempting one – and failing, miserably – earlier in the season. The blooper went viral and would later be featured on TNT’s Shaqtin’ A Fool.
However, in the Lakers’ last home game of the season tonight – which could also be Nick’s last appearance at Staples Center as a member of the purple and gold seeing as the 28-year-old is planning on opting out of his contract in order to sign a more lucrative deal this summer – Swaggy P decided to put on a show for the fans by attempting the 360 layup once again.
This time though, Young pulled it off. As expected, this caused Staples to go nuts.
Before the game, Swaggy P addressed the Staples Center crowd and thanked them for their support this season, a honor that would usually be reserved for a player such as Kobe Bryant or Pau Gasol.
Apparently, Bryant was set to address the crowd but had to pull out due to a migraine.
The fans have obviously grown to love Nick Young this season and most would be thrilled if he re-signed with the Lakers this summer.
Please don’t leave, Swaggy!
